On the outside I seemed like I was healthy; well educated, professional job and also a very active exerciser who was physically healthy.
However, an inner voice was telling me that something was wrong.
A busy, stressful sedentary job coupled with being robbed at knife point, heartbreak, emotional abuse and an unnerving feeling like I didn’t belong sucked the energy and life out of me.
I tried to bury this pain with external distractions. But the pain always seemed to linger causing low self esteem and a deep sense of shame.
I was healthy on the outside by modern society’s expectations, but dying on the inside.
So I started reconnecting with myself. Meditation and journalling allowed me to better express my emotions and become more self aware.
This bought up a lot of uncomfortable truths and subconscious beliefs such as not believing I was good enough and wasn’t deserving of love had been unknowingly holding me back.
It also increased my awareness of how modern society doesn’t facilitate a healthy lifestyle and how my current lifestyle was soul crushing.
But this also gave meaning to my life and I felt empowered to find a better way.
Because when you go through pain, especially emotional pain, you only have 2 options – it either destroys you or you turn that pain into power. The truth is that there will be little charity or compassion. You either overcome your wounds, or you suffer.
Life had challenged me and forced me to evolve.
So I worked on improving my mental habits and made small, simple lifestyle changes. This transformed my energy and highlighted how much of modern society is backward when it comes to meeting our human needs.
I believe true health is much more than a gym session, a number on a scale or a photoshopped photo to post on social media.
Mind, emotion, body and spirit are all one and the same. If one is out of balance, it affects your whole state of being.
I’m not perfect. I still drink beer, eat chocolate and feel like I’m not deserving sometimes… but I live and breathe a holistic approach to health where being consistent with the right things is what counts, not being perfect.
Now it’s my purpose to empower you to maximise your energy and move like a human again so you can live the life you deserve.
